UNDP Annual Report 2008
Apr 8, 2013
UNDP Nepal’s over-riding priorities in 2008 were to help consolidate peace after the end of the 1996–2006 armed conflict and to continue working for Nepal’s long term development by contributing to reducing poverty and helping the country achieve the Millennium Development Goals.
As an operational arm of the UN and one present for the long-term, UNDP aims to play its part in the short-term by assisting the Government to deliver a ‘peace dividend’ at the community level, and in the medium to long-term to help address the underlying causes of the conflict so that peace is irreversible.
In 2008, UNDP partnered and collaborated with communities, the Government, bilateral and multilateral agencies, civil society, academia and the business community to implement 39 projects.
